Like Or Comment And How?

Hello my Fabulous reader. Happy Reading to you all. I am addicted to social media. Sometimes I wonder, what will be my life if I start uninstalling all my social media apps. I like to spend time on social media a lot. Sometimes for fun and sometimes to learn something. I am fond of synonyms and like to use it wherever applicable. I have even written one post on it. Do check it out. “English- The supreme Being“. Do not want to lie to you, I even see some rubbish videos. Some people have lots of time creating and editing. But what is amusing is that they have lots of guts to upload the same on social media. And yes, they get more likes and comments. Though all comments are slang, this is what they want. Attention and publicity. Netizens don’t understand that the more likes and comments, the more powerful the post will be and will flash every time on the first screen, urging more people to interact with that post.

When only Facebook was ruling, that time In India (I don’t know about other countries), there were several posts of undernutrition sick kids, with the message saying it needs 50k or 1 lac likes to save this kid. Sometimes they even said to write “prayers” in the comment section or something like this to save the kid. Yes, the post used to get that many likes and comments. As I mentioned earlier, the more likes and comments, the more powerful the post will be. and hence the revenue. Yes, people earn through this. But there was no proof, whether the post was genuine or not. Hence, there were many articles urging people not to like and comment. Well, I don’t have that article right now, because it’s too old.

To avoid this, funding came into picture. People took maximum use of this. and even succeed. and then came this lady. Click here to see what she did. She became very popular when caught. Such incidents make people stop helping others.

Still there are many post of soldiers or god’s, saying that a nude girl will get like, but a soldier will never get like. So I stalk this guy to check how much he follows his own rule. Laughter, his posts were full of nude girls. Such people create nudity and wants to educate people. Not only that, people follow dead people. I never understood this logic, how can you follow the person, when you know that he is already dead. There are many celebrities like this who are no more but their followers increased after their death. The celebrities or the family are not the ones who upload the pics in their social media account. It’s their PR team. And once the celebrity is gone, why will the PR team be with them?

Yes I do comment sometimes. Not on such content. But on the content who gives incomplete or false information. Recently, there was one ad on Facebook, regarding a newly launched high-rise building. The project is near my area and hence I know the area very well. The project said, “Sea view facing”. I commented, “It’s not at all sea view. It’s a creek view and this is Mumbai, not Maldives. So there is a difference between creek and sea view”. To my surprise, I got a few likes and also a few funny replies to that comment. In another incident, I was shocked to see one of the reputed companies, who projected lavassa as Italy. Lavassa is actually a failed city in pune and people go there for a one day trip. And yes, there is no Italy feeling in that city at all. Absolutely nothing. Obviously, I commented requesting them not to spread false information. But a few days later, they uploaded one video, where they literally showed us what to steal from a hotel room and what not. Like you can steal toothbrushes and all but not iron. Really?? Is it?? We did not know this. So unfollow and live a peaceful life.

So basically, You can’t ignore the post. The post is portraited in such a way that you will comment on it or like it. Some netizens did on that undernutrition fake post, I did on this incomplete information post. It’s like Love it or hate it, but you can’t ignore it.

Social media is vast. Yes, I do portrait my life in that. You can say it, “Attention”. I do it for that and also, this is my time-pass. I follow some useless handles, I follow some valuable handles too. I had posted rubbish content, I had posted some valuable information too. I did show off, I showed my real life too. I stalk, I have blocked a few known people from stalking me.

In the end, I will just say a simple thing: be active on social media, but be alert. Keep your notification on. and don’t ignore them at all. Be safe. Click on likes, Comment on proper post / friend’s post only. & Please don’t click on unknown links.

Thanks a lot readers for taking your time and reading this post. Also, have a look at my social media post. “Life at social media

English – The Supreme Being

Hello readers! We all know that English is now an important language. In India, It’s now compulsory for everyone to talk in English. I am not against learning this language. In fact, whenever, in your free time you should learn a new language. But in India, it has now become kind of compulsory to speak in English. Seems, very soon it will be declared as a national language. Well thanks to the international board.

Yes, I am trying my best to learn this language. I know how to speak in English but the basic and simple ones, not the IELTS. Now everyone speaks this kind of English language.

We have social media, where we get all new words. I am following some handles there. Though I don’t remember the exact words (which is not good), but I remember something like synonyms were there. Well, it is difficult to learn such synonyms. But who invented such synonyms and why is it called “The Better English”? Yes, your English is better but mine is also better. Going through this, I came across that; never use the word “very”. It’s informal. But why? What does this “very” do?  It doesn’t sound bad.  We say ‘very good’, ‘very happy’, etc in our day-to-day life. Then, how it is not an international standard?

We have many masters in India. One such person who is always in news is Mr. Shashi Tharoor. Sometimes for politics and more because of his tweets, which always go above our head, because it is always in high standard. One such word he used in his tweets was “floccinaucinihilipilification”. So obviously, I started fishing around the google. Thank God, Google is always there to help us. Mind becomes jazzy when we read or listen to such words. He is the one who can talk for England in that high standard language.

Learning English has a juvenescent effect. We edify with frequent readings. We all behave like an Opacarophile when we hear such words. Now you will wonder, what has happened to me. Writing this post demanded a metanoia and made me promote the avant-garde.

Ok. I will not exaggerate much now . All I have to say is that English is a very funny language. But very vast. Sorry, not “very”. It’s  hilarious and Gigantic. Is that better ?? Each and every word has some high level synonyms which we never heard or learned. Each and every sentence has their own idioms and phrases. To learn English is like climbing a mountain. It never promised you a rose garden. But when you learn something, you will feel like the king of the mountain. But you must be zealous to learn such English.

This post was full of grandiloquent language. I flew blind. I hope you like my zany tricks.

Well, here are the actual meanings of my sentences / words :
–> Floccinaucinihilipilification -> The action or habit of estimating something as worthless.
–> Fishing around – > Searching 
–> Jazzy -> Bright, Colorful and Showy
–> Talk for England -> Talk for hours
–> Juvenescent effect -> Makes you feel young
–> Edify -> Enhances brain
–> Opacarophile -> The one who loves sunset
–> Metanoia -> Change in character
–> Avant-garde -> New and experimental ideas and methods.
–> Climbing a mountain -> Not an easy task
–> Never promised rose garden -> Never said it would be easy
–> King of mountain -> The one, in group who knows everything
–> Zealous -> Enthusiastic and eager
–> Grandiloquent -> The way of using language to attract and gain attention
–> Flew blind -> Wrote blindly
–> Zany -> Clownish

Do You Need Any Help?

Do you need help? Yes, I need one. Help is something we usually do, depending on our mood and even ask in mood, and we get help in mood too. We always teach our child to help others. But do we adults do this by heart? We ask, but in the name of asking. If we get a reply as “no”, then we are happy inside. If we get a reply as “yes”, then we curse ourselves why we have asked?

“Do you need any help? ” – we keep asking this question in order to reduce someone’s work or reduce someone’s tension. But sometimes, we get so exhausted from our daily routine that we forget to ask this question. Due to many restrictions in this pandemic, we failed to ask even if we wanted to ask. But yet, people helped each other somehow in this difficult situation. But what amused me was people started asking this same question on social media when Bollywood Actor Sushant Singh Rajput departed his life. Well, Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on 14 June 2020, i.e. in the peak pandemic year and that time It was said that he was in depression and he committed suicide by hanging himself. Later, It turned out to be murder and the investigation is still going on. So, when the depression news broke out, everyone started posting on social media that we will help you, talk to us, etc etc and all that.

My question here is “Will you surely help people who are in depression?”. Do you have that much time and energy to listen and understand someone’s story? If we don’t have someone’s phone number and that person calls you, then we will wait for truecaller. And upon knowing who is calling you, we either hang up the phone, send him a “busy in meeting” message or you will wait till the call disconnects on its own. But you will not pick the call. Harsh, but true. We never pick a call, if we don’t want to talk to that person. Then how come you are helping us?

In this pandemic, we saw a frightful cut of. The people who were lucky enough were overloaded by work. They didn’t had a choice and were working day and night in order to keep their job safe. Hence, people were exceedingly busy in meetings and meeting their deadline. In such a scenario, if some depressed person called you then you can’t tell him that you are busy. You can’t tell them to call later. A depressed person will be in more depression after hearing such a response from you. So leave it and please don’t help anyone.

This pandemic has put almost everyone in depression. Some people are still struggling to meet their needs. But they are not losing hope and trying their best to search for a job. For such people “Do you need any help?” is nothing but a curse for them. Some people believe in themselves so much that they don’t take help from anyone. And thus, we think that they don’t need help. But such people badly need you because they are already in such a bad stage and they don’t want us to take their tensions. So in such a situation, please understand and try to help with their basic needs.

Some people need financial help. But money always puts our relationship into trouble. We understand someone’s needs yet we don’t help them because of only one reason and that is that we don’t want to break the relationship. Still I will express my desire to financially help someone at least not extensively but partially. This will at least maintain the relationship. Well, in the end it totally depends on you and how much you want to help. No force, no compulsion.

To all people who are in depression, talking does help. But it also depends on the person whom you are talking to. Because you never know when your secrets will be revealed by them. So, in order to fight your depression, you have to go to a psychiatrist and get treated. There is no shame in consulting a doctor. Brain is your part of the body and it has to be nurtured. What’s the use of eating healthy food but not giving the right instructions to your brain? Your diet will be useless if you don’t treat your brain well. So without any hesitation consult a doctor. Go out, take a walk, meet and greet people. And don’t depend on other people. Take a day off from your daily routine, and go for a small vacation or one day trip. Try to keep your house and surroundings clean. This will help in positive vibes. Pray and meditate everyday for your own betterment. Eat food on time and listen to good music.

Well, I need help… Please suggest a topic for my next post.
